Changes in Store for AMC Outdoors and Member E-Communications

In an effort to reduce expenses and AMC's carbon footprint, AMC Outdoors will be published six times per year, beginning with the September, 2009, issue. The magazine will also begin running abbreviated activity listings beginning with the May issue. At the same time, AMC is stepping up its efforts in member electronic communications and social networking.

Full trip and event listings will continue to be available on the activity committee web pages here on our chapter website and at trips.outdoors.org, and well as through a new e-mail based activity alert available through the AMC Member Center at the end of January, 2009. Members can also sign up for electronic delivery of our chapter newsletter on the Member Center.

Trip leaders will see new word count limits for magazine listings on the Online Trip Listing system submission forms starting February 15 for trips submitted for the May issue. A complete Q&A for trip leaders will be distributed through chapter chairs, published in the March AMC Outdoors, and posted to www.outdoors.org/volunteer/forms. Posted April, 2009.
